The Complete Handel's Messiah: Accompagnato and Air

Part II
The accomplishment of redemption by the sacrifice of Jesus, mankind's rejection of God's offer, and mankind's utter defeat when trying to oppose the power of the Almighty


31. Accompagnato (Soprano)

He was cut off out of the land of the living:
for the transgressions
of Thy people was He stricken.
Isaiah 53:8

32. Air (Soprano)

But Thou didst not leave His soul in hell;
nor didst Thou suffer
Thy Holy One to see corruption.
Psalm 16:10
